Well, you might ask Bear McCreary, or his web designer, as they seem to be using it, or one almost exactly like this.

This font is called Andesite Regular and was designed by me in the early 1990s. It was ripped off by someone on a PC shortly thereafter, hence the name being shortened to Andes. This font was completely reworked with additional characters and converted to OpenType format and is now sold commercially for US $15 at

Hey Everyone!!! the Author had posted here!!

Also they mentioned their site:

This should be used rather than asking for them to contact you on a ripped off version of their font!

It is a bummer to see the creator of this font take full credit for the design here and sell it as if it’s his own, when it is clearly a clone of Plaza, a Letraset typeface by Alan Meeks in 1974: On Harris’ site he states Andesite is “based on” Plaza, but that’s putting it mildly — the basic shapes are nearly identical. Why sell a replica when the original designer is still alive ( and presumably collecting royalties from existing digital versions?

I wrote to Alan and he confirms that Andesite is an unauthorized copy. So what we have here in Andes is a free copy of a knock off. Dafont, could you remove the font download and point to Alan’s site or at least a link to Plaza?

Just in case there is any question about whether Andesite is a copy of Plaza or just a close interpretation, here are the basic character sets of Plaza SH (a licensed digitization from Scangraphic) and Andesite:

And here is the Letraset version of Plaza compared to Andesite:
